A productive day of course enhancement occured on Saturday, July 26 at Prairie Center Park in Olathe.
Approximately 4 cubic yards of shredded wood chips were placed around tees 1, 4, and 8, as well as the 2 basket on the island. These locations were some of the more heavily eroded on the course.
The fabulous DR mower made yet another appearence and with Andy and Adam guiding it around made many of the back holes far easier to navigate. If anybody hasn't seen one of these, it's basically a walk behind, self propelled brush hog. This is the most signifigant task that got done. Anybody that plays Olathe owes Andy and Adam a big thanks for the DR.
Low hanging dead limbs were removed on hole 14 left.
Dead fall and some dead branches were removed on holes 12 and 13.
Hole 15 tee box had been partially obstructed by branches on a willow growing beside the pond. This was taken care of with some selective pruning and the denting of Andy's truck.
Hole 8 tee had also been partially obstructed by low hanging branches. Some selelective pruning occured here.
Some of the barbed wire fence line was repaired (Andy again).
Bryan G. hit multiple areas with his weed eater.
I probably missed some of the tasks, but most were included above.
A crew of 7 humans and one small canine worked most of the morning. Andy was there early, but I would say most everyone worked between 4 and 5 hours. After the work we enjoyed a picnic with Oklahoma Joes and drink, and most went to the Redneck Yacht Club for a relaxing afternoon on the Lake of Gardner.

Thanks to all that came out. Baskets are for the most part in round 1 settings, so come out Monday and give it a whirl.
